I AM HERE: Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces
Member Pricing: $36.00
Home movies capture everything from mundane events to rites of passage: a child's first steps, a family vacation or a birthday party. These everyday subjects that fascinate amateur filmmakers have also long inspired visual artists. I AM HERE presents home movies alongside art by Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Nicole Eisenman, Keith Haring, David Hockney, Arthur Jafa, Ed Ruscha and others, as well as personal artifacts including family photo albums, mixtapes, time capsules, postcards and home movies.
This visually supercharged book embraces a more-is-more visual approach with over 500 images, plus an eye-popping cover by Toronto based artist Fiona Smyth. Chaptered into themes with titles inspired by song lyrics, and interspersed with short texts, essays, and manifestos, I AM HERE is a book that fully embraces everyday modes of expression.
